Miso Butter Egg & Avocado Toast

Melt the butter by placing it in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Stir the miso into the butter.

Pour the miso-butter mixture into a non-stick pan on the stove over medium-low heat. Add the crushed garlic clove. Cook the garlic over medium heat for 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Mix in the tomatoes & lemon juice.

Crack each egg into the pan, cooking as you would a fried egg – reduce the heat to low. Cook slowly until the whites are set & the yolks begin to thicken, being aware of how’d you’d like each egg done (soft, medium, hard).

Using a toaster, toast your two pieces of bread.

Spread the avocado mixture over the toasts evenly, lay the cooked egg on-top. Sprinkle the asiago cheese and green onions overtop. Finished with some freshly cracked black pepper and a pinch of ground cayenne.
